It is a weekend that attendees will soon not forget.
When asked what attracts his guests to this event, promoter Steve Harris replies; “We get a large amount of return attendees as Big Bear Adventure is a grass roots event. There is an energy that is hard to describe but the town welcomes us with open arms, and the guys leave with new friendships and a sense of having a true vacation. It’s all about having a blast. I want the guys to leave having a true experience and I am proud knowing that everyone leaves happy and full of great memories”.
There is quite a bit to do in Big Bear. Jet ski, bike ride, hike, horseback ride, just to name a few. Also there are many, many restaurants to keep everyone well fed from fast food to 5 star restaurants to ice cream shops and coffee bars.
